Tarnab is few kms short of Peshawar on GT road. If going by motoway, then turn back to Islamabad and on both sides of road you would find several nurseries. There is Agricultural research institute too who gives various varieties to these nurseries too. I shall be getting few Pecan Nut trees in a weeks time from there.

Me and my wife both are fond of plants, this is something natural. We just like plantation and like forests and have natural trait for hilly areas, and that's why we selected the most undulating piece of land instead of plain.

Getting fruits would be a secondary byproduct of these trees in few years of course.

Forgot to mention that also planted two trees of Alocha beauty.
Also trying to grow laukat and quince on.same graft as laukat is grafted on quince. Have left both to grow, and others cut down the quince to keep the laukat.

You may 2 or 4 trees from same trunk giving fruits at Dr Iftikhar nursery.

So kind of agree with Talha sb, just a joy of seeing plants growing and flowering and then fruiting :-)

" For Munir sb., I have planted several varieties last February, to be brief - Red oranges, Kino, Grapefruit, Peaches (early grand), Laukat (Japanese), Pears, Plums (centa rosa, fazle-manani), Apricots, Apples (anna & golden dorset), Percimmon, sweet orange, fruiters, Pecan Nut, Olives, Shakri orange, Moro orange, Pomegranate, Almonds (2 varieties), Black & White Mulberries, Quince, Grapes (about 10+ varieties), Guava (local and Thai red), Cheeko, Jamun, Avacados, Falsa, FigI hope didn't forget something to mention. "

Wow. Yawer Sb, what a wonderful collection you have in your Garden of almost all fruit trees & their varieties, which can be possibly grown here. A commendable effort indeed.However, I would suggest addition of Sangtara , Nectarine (a combination/cross of Peach & Plum), Papaya, Litchi & an odd Mango tree ie,Sensation if you like. I have all of these, the first three already fruiting successfully.


" Munir sb, if you are in Islamabad, then I would be happy to invite you to have a visit with me on weekend and then you can have a better idea of varieties."

Certainly, I'll love to visit- will coordinate.

No, they don't have, nor have so far worked on dwarf varieties.However, all smaller size fruit trees can easily be grown in large sized pots; their growth in pots would be lesser in speed as well as in size & of course in yield, compared to ground. Moreover, their size can be kept in check up-to a manageable/convenient height of a dwarf variety,by way of pruning & training.
